Emergency Hire and Install of new 400 KW Danfoss Drive

  • On the customers site an Allen Bradley VSD had catastrophically failed, this had the potential to completely stop production onsite.
  • JJ Loughran delivered and successfully installed our own 400KW Vacon Hire drive, which was installed and made operational within a 6-hour period after the Alan Bradley Variable Speed Drive failure.
  • At the next available shutdown of the plant, JJ Loughran’s Vacon hire drive was replaced with a New Danfoss, 400Kw VSD IP54. NXC07305A5L0SSFA1AF00C300 cabinet built unit as seen in the attached images.
  • The new Danfoss VSD was fitted with internal brake chopper and external 27Kw rated enclosed braking resistor.
  • JJ Loughran engineers carried out all the Mechanical & Electrical works inhouse, this included Ladder, power & control cabling installation.
  • JJ Loughran also worked closely with the plant operators in the testing, set up & commissioning of the new drive.
